Powering today’s schools. Empowering tomorrow’s minds
Our vision is for every eligible school in Aotearoa to power their learning with solar energy. That’s why alongside the Ministry of Education we’ve designed a solarZero service just for schools.
The service, built on a landmark agreement between the Ministry of Education and solarZero, and financed by NZGIF, removes the entire upfront capital cost of solar, enables every school in the nation to go solar and save money on energy costs.
Our vision is to install solar across all the nation’s schools. Generating over 200 megawatts of solar power every year, meeting up to 1% of New Zealand’s power demand and reducing the nation’s carbon emissions from the electricity sector by 5%.

The solarZero energy system (solar panels, including installation, maintenance and upgrades) is provided at no cost to your school.
A fixed monthly fee delivers guaranteed savings on your school’s power bills from year one, reducing operating costs and providing certainty.
solarZero reduces your school’s reliance on the grid, and reduces your school’s carbon footprint by choosing a sustainable, cleaner and smarter renewable energy source.
Take action to combat climate change, and provide students with opportunities to learn more about energy’s role in a sustainable future.
The solarZero in schools service is tailored for your school to maximise solar power generation and power bill savings.
Our GridforGood™ is a growing network of homes, and soon schools, who are harnessing and sharing the benefits of solar to help kiwis take control of their power.

NZGIF is continuing its investment in solarZero by providing a senior debt facility to finance solar panels on schools across New Zealand.
Kaitiakitanga is a core value here at solarZero. We asked some of our team what Kaitiakitanga meant for them. Here’s what they had to say.
We had the privilege to work with several Marae across New Zealand, installing our solarZero system as part of their Marae DIY with a focus on Kaitiakitanga.
